The future of the CAP

Event date: 
22 June 2018

The French Society for Rural Economy (SFER) with the support of European Foundations for Sustainable Agriculture and Food (EFSAF) is organizing a one-day symposium on “The future of the CAP” on 22 June in Montpellier, France. This event will take place right after the annual meeting of EFSAF. It follows a two-day SFER conference on “Agricultural and food policies: trajectories and reforms” 

The objective of the event is to have scientists, policy makers, civil society actors, foundations, NGOs and professionals discuss the general theme of « How can the future CAP foster innovative actions? »

This symposium is being organized at an important moment in the current negotiations on the CAP 2020 reform since the legislative proposals from the Commission will be officially presented in June  2018. This will therefore be an opportunity to take stock of the latest progress and to have views from other European partners.

Open to French and international audience from various stakeholder groups (e.g., civil society organizations, foundations, research and academic institutions, donors, etc.), the symposium will be conducted in English.
